    okay so now I followed http://learnedstuffs.wordpress.com/2...-ubuntu-10-04/ to run an .avi file from inside the terminal:

    so now I get something visual!
    but it's kinda like playing an old game...except it's more like ascii art or something - all the characters are flashing and changing and also changing different colours (so there is some colour but the video it's self is mainly black and white)

    Re: no video only sound in VLC & Movie Player

    okay, so for some reason I get both video and audio (like normal) by using MS WindowsXP with VirtualBox OSE thru (my only OS) Ubuntu... which means it a problem with Ubuntu, and not my new graphics card

    this has me very puzzled me very indeed.......
